Located at 3° south latitude of the Equator, the Northern Atolls and more precisely the Bird Atoll represent the northernmost part of the Seychelles archipelago.
This situation offers often favorable sea conditions and allows to dive there almost all the year.
Compared to the other diving boats and thanks to the speed of travel our Boat Explorer1, 5 hours of navigation will suffice to reach the Bird Atoll.
Unlike the atolls located in the West and South of the Seychelles where the crossings, often interminable, do not allow to dive because of too large depths (up to 4000 meters), this cruise will allow you to dive in the most fish-rich spots in the world, which we are the only ones to frequent, guaranteeing grey sharks, nurse sharks, whale sharks and manta rays (depending on the season), giant rays and a multitude of schools of fish and pelagics on a selection of our 12 best sites, different from each other.
Boarding in the morning, installation in your cabins, security briefing and development of the program. Lunch on board. Navigation to Praslin with 2 or 3 dives on the way! Anchorage at Anse Lazio...
